Dropped off my sister at the final day of her yoga seminar and headed to Wilson's Landing.
Paddled up the Wekiva River
Little gator on the Little Wekiva
This is as far as I made it up the Little Wekiva.
Back to the Wekiva
Landed, picked up Monica, and headed to Haulover Canal
Manatees at Bairs Cove
Monica accuses me of paddling against the tide both ways. It was very strong in the canal. On the way back, I tried to tow her. The rope broke. I think she had a good time, despite that, and an earlier sandbar incident.
I think that's a dolphin, above. We were out after dark to check out the bioluminesence
I bought a used kayak in March, 2005 and began sending tales of trips to friends and family. That November, generous friends bought me a camera, Canon Powershot 400, so pictures were added to the tales. January 2007, I was able to add underwater photography, thanks to one of my brothers. I am now on my sixth camera. As of May, 2014, I have a Powershot 115 IS.
When I began kayaking in 2005, I would search the Internet for paddling information, trip reports, and practical advice. I hope this site adds to your knowledge and enjoyment.
My home in Winter Park, FL,north of Orlando,allows easy access to both coasts and all the spring fed rivers in between. Many Tales are day trips. No overnight stay required.
